  1. Brexit means Brexit, except for Lotro, YAY!
  2. She does keep finding a reason to sub doesn't she. She says what she sees but misses a lot besides. I have a feeling that I got an infraction because I had a run in with her and maybe Lord.Funk white knighted and reported me. She's not the worst. But I see her magically leaving a discussion when she realises she has no ground to stand on. But I don't think she can actually entertain that SSG management are the corrupt dishonest entity that they are. Too many arrive at an opinion without a reasoned argument. I've long though the report must be their only weapon when challenged. I never needed such because I can stand by my argument or yield to another's if appropriate. The rest of these names contain some serial lotro under achievers. But at least it's a public forum (excepting most of us ofc) just think what diatribe must be going on with the sycophants and Jerry in their private streamer channels.
  3. The whales have been buying LP all weekend so they can't shut the thread down.

    Legendary Servers = Failed Experiment?

    And EU players would only get to move to the US servers so more grief there.

    Breaking: New Race Announced

    I think SSG must now have a figure of what money they can garner when a new character is created. Whether it's one who valars up or levels normally they must have an idea it's worth it to make a new race. Having it included in all packages means they have an idea it's far more to gain than the 1000 LP it would otherwise cost. I guess the race change will come later and have a price, but if a player is in anyway attached to their characters can you see them changing race and name? Worth it for players with a bad rep maybe - all of us? The 5% to light damage of a high elf was quite useful, you'd have to think these dwarves will have a carrot of a similar power. SSG won't be in a hurry to revamp the old racial traits until after this goes live. The high elf movement actually put me off them. I'm not so keen on the female dwarf option, there are some odd folk about though, the one in particular that comes to mind seems too enamoured with the high elf to contemplate this though. Mac

    Cordovan Strikes with Banhammer

    I think the infringement is the suggestion that staff can't play and this is seen as an attack, I seem to remember getting several infringements when posts are inferred as an attack on current and previous staff of Turbine and SSG. Just a negative feedback post could have the same outcome at this rate. How can they run a business if all they can manage is to cover each other's ignorant asses all day long? Maybe you should use those 29 other accounts to make inexplicitly complementary posts, like the cockswallowers do... But how long has Cordoban got in the job, he's nearing War-stead/rubberbanding territory and he's hasn't a hope in hell of getting through Rohan on foot?
  7. I don't have Amazon Prime myself but I might take the 30 day trial one day. PS. I would also prefer to pay for a great game rather than play a free one that's all about trying to extort money out of me.
  8. I'm just dropping in a hint for anyone researching the "competition". Is the plan to make money out of the game or further drive the core business? I'd think the latter or they'd want Blizzard sized numbers. It maybe just a speculative investment to see where it goes but at least there's a stash of cash to go all in with.
  9. Surely Jeff Bezos will want it priced for maximum take up to kill all competition, like free to play with Amazon Prime then have zero micro transactions and all dev into the game? Well I can hope...

    Appreciate the staffing history. The timing had the whiff of a bad rep name change ala Devilled_Egg. I had thought he was just avoiding live streams, may have been more serious. VXP: We have 3 five day wrappers, first awards 1000 VXP, can only speculate the reward from the next two. The festival long wrapper doesn't award VXP. We also have these two 50 VXP dailies that can be done every day, festival and encore. An encore will likely have room to fit one 5 day. Either way it's a drop in the ocean for a new player who wants what the older characters have gotten in the transfer bribe. Just with these figures we can figure on a year around festival not even making a dent. Ball park 190 weeks if the 580,000 hole is to be recouped.

    Yay! I earned 100 VXP at the festival today. Two quests mind you...

    Cordovan Strikes with Banhammer

    It's all a front though. It's SSG he is there to protect. But once people make their decision to back Cordovan they are invested and their own egos prevent them from being persuaded otherwise. The greater the support the more you're invested and the bigger hit to the ego if you let yourself see the light. Subconsciously you'll just not want to do the research and be thorough. I'd suggest that for those who rely on faith for their beliefs would be more susceptible. Most of us here have seen a good bit more of Cordovan though and his rules don't allow us to show that side of him to this audience and they'd dismiss what we said. I fell out with a friend over the Lance Armstrong scandal, friend could not entertain he was a cheat and would not look at the growing evidence. No one likes to be duped and even less to be seen to be duped. Egos. It is similar if you take a more critical view, we all have egos. But in being more critical we end up having more data to base our opinions on. The bar for CM was quite low for him, hardly surprising that anything better gained supporters. But in the two years he hasn't learnt much following his choice of co-host around. Just that choice of game dev junky stalker ruins all credibility. At least you'd think, but still he is defended. Is it a bunch of old women with no avenue for their nurturing tendencies, or desperate for some patronage? They manipulate him to keep their small "world" safe. It's easily done. I suggested he had a "tell" when relying the more dubious pieces to the audience, looking squarely at the camera. He'd always done it like that. He immediately changed his delivery to a "forced" offhand relaxation and looking off to the upper right. Been around 3 months now. How long before the devoted pass this nugget on and we have another tweak to the delivery? It's a good job he knows so little and can't be sure anything he's asked to relay is a lie or he could end up like a golfer with the yips. Mac

    Cordovan Strikes with Banhammer

    I see he dropped his signature and all the links to his drivel output. Deluded Self-promotion was his thing wasn't it? No I couldn't be arsed to actually go find it right now.

    12 Year Anniversary Failure

    Druidsfire was streaming with that title last week. Talk about self-delusion.

    The issue is more that the relics are useless after Westenmet, maybe T10. Hitting Mordor and none of the player melded relics are any use. In Vales crafting of relics is back but has no link to the guilded relic crafting. Barter and raid item gated crafted relic. More forgotten tech and hacks.

    Did Mirk actually launch?

    I think they are all busy in Rohan/Dunland on their Guardians. They're complaining that they don't have a source for new First Agers at 65, a load of barters set to level 70 and not dropping on Durchest which raid kins had in their farming plans. Mob difficulty levels apparently looking set right at the cost of Anvil difficulty outrageous, flipping that switch in a hotfix next week. Blizzard actually spent dosh on this stuff.

    Zero mention of virtues on the stream, maybe none of them have the capacity to do maths. Anyone know if QuartermasterU did a bad rep change to SSG_RedPanda? His ignorant trolling has a familiar touch. Timelines fit his fall from grace.

    Same shit different week

    Maybe all the "investors" over the years have never had a return or they've just frittered it away, Infinite Crisis? Have to believe that between Turbine/WB and Daybreak lawyers they had a shitty deal to keep it going. Mac

    Captain Build Advice

    Vales brought the final trait point to 92. They announced a while back that this would be the last one. I know it will only do my head in but I figured I'd take a look at what's streaming ahead of the Cord broadcast to find a level 118 Druidsfire char with no end tier class deeds complete. She's reading tooltips mid "melee" battle looking for skills mentioned in the class deed panel. She's also looking for some other player to die and get the rezz deed advancing. With 3 accounts she can't take even that leap. Pontin: should give her some useful advise surely? Is she some kind of macabre freak show to you? I'd say it must be a Valar toon but has she done this stuff on any char since the trait trees came in? Edit: Further along and I quote "Why can't I fear it" Because you never read what your skills can and can't do.

    Same shit different week

    For periods we had little oversight, class devs allowed to do their own thing playing around with a favourite class and ignoring another. Mother Vvyanne with little technical ability allowing everyone free reign to develop, more for their resumes than for the good of the game. Given the lack of knowledge, reason and logic would have you reach out for help but the environment has ever been deceit. Perhaps engine wise but getting all their inspiration for Lotro development from stuff they have in DDO hasn't so far done much for Lotro. If you hate one game and love the other which are you going to copy over? Mac

    The shard cost is extreme though. It takes a lot of gold to meld, is it the same for sharding? You never know, one day we might get to chance to make useful relics again from these stock piles. Unlikely given the recent excuses for crafting additions they have made in the Vales update. But they rather we spend our capped currencies on this shit instead. One day they might have a Lotro Player in charge and save this game.

    There has to be a good many at SSG in complete denial. Some have hung on to some morals, can't bring themselves to post shit on the forums so they get Cord to do it for them. Others can stay in their own bubble like Chris Person and MoL and never stray out of their remit. They have survived this long after all. We have SSGPanda trolling to diffuse matters when they are found out, trying to justify shitty store items/costs and relying on the Blue Title that sways all the numpties, the last shit to suggest that they didn't have a monumental hole in the virtue system because of festivals and endgame weeklies. We do have Vastin covering for the shit his colleagues/boss are dumping on the game how long can he put up with it? Management who don't even like the game. Cord on DDO streams has me associate the word "competent" with what I see. Bumbling moron on Lotro. It's like a concerted effort to draw competent gamers to DDO and shitty no hopers to Lotro. You have to have a very low bar to see his Mordor video and think that's the game for me. How anyone at SSG can look at the official stream and think it adequately promotes the game is beyond me. Even that deluded Sanders woman had her limits. Has Sev gotten a character beyond the Shire even? You are probably treated like scum around the office if you still play or prefer Lotro. Any shit you do in Lotro just needs a corresponding piece of metrics to tell the boss and the suit it's working as intended. But never-mind it's only Lotro... But what do you do if you have no clue? Bluff it out.
  23. You expressed interest: Too much time on their hand on a capped server. Acorn Travel: but you can't make stacks, you have to make one and mail it off being unique. Who of thunk VIP mail would be used as an exploit? Enterprising if nothing else, but to actually obtain titles and rewards I'd have to question their senses. Mac Edit: You'll have likely just clicked on his youtube channel though.

    After the initial look at the stats they chose for Wit I realised they wouldn't add so much. Adding both Phy and Tact mastery is wasting a space for something else on most classes, does having both of these make it still useful for Cappies? We don't know if Wit in particular will get a buff at some point. They can literally play with the values anytime they like if they want a good laugh. Yeah you can't avoid most Explorer deeds completing as you quest through. You can avoid finishing advanced slayers for a savings account when you can rank you favourites. In the Vales the slayer numbers are set oddly low like they don't want anyone to save for the inevitable cap rise in the expansion.

    Be Virtuous!

    Yeah take the bribe and sing SSGs praises You might quite possibly be the lucky bastard who's hit the sweet spot of the rank transfer. Not too few that the cost increases get you later and not too many that you have too few deeds available left to do. A Goldilocks character.
